Wiring generator to hunting cabin
Hello, we have a hunting cabin (actually a metal building we recently finished out) that is in a remote area and are required to use a generator for electricity. I see most of the requirement for providing electricity to a breaker panel require the use of a transfer switch. I don't feel this would be applicable to us since we have no other source of power from a utility. So that said, I am in need of some help with hooking the generator up to a more "permanent" set up instead of multiple extension cords. I plan to hang a small breaker panel and wire less than 10 outlets and less than 5 light fixtures. We have two small propane heaters that have electric blowers that will be plugged in as well. First, I purchased a small 100 amp Homeline panel with 4 circuits, is that overkill? Next, my plan is to run a 14 guage wire plugged in to the generator through a weatherproof junction box on the exterior of the cabin and into the panel to supply power. Is that a reasonable method of running power from the generator? We don't need anything fancy and are simply trying to install something more permanent on the inside of the cabin so that we can easily start the generator, plug in the cord, and be on our way. Thank you all in advance for your help and suggestions.
